Abhishek Banerjee who is currently seen in streaming series Aakhri Sach, celebrates 5 years of his horror comedy film Stree (2018) directed by Amar Kaushik. Banerjee who essayed the role of Janaa, Rajkummar Rao's friend in the film said that the journey taken by his character has been beyond his wildest imagination.
While his character started its journey with Stree, it also became a part of another horror-comedy Bhediya (2022) starring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. Both these films belong to the horror-comedy universe along with Roohi (2021) starring Janhvi Kapoor.
Talking about his character completing 5 years since its inception, Banerjee said, "Five years have passed since Janaa came to life. The journey this character has taken has been beyond my wildest imagination. Starting with Stree and expanding this character’s universe, Janaa's evolution has been remarkable."
He added,"While I began my film journey with darker roles, portraying Janaa gave me the opportunity to embrace the humorous facets of my craft. I have enjoyed every minute of playing Janna. I have related to this character and have connected well with it. I am elated with the love that audience has showered on me for playing Janna and equally excited that Janna is going to come back soon with Stree 2.”
Banerjee will next be seen in Section 84 alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Stree 2, Vedaa, Mr. & Mrs. Mahi which is in its post production stage.
